The last thing is a comemmorative medal, for the 50 years reign of Wilhelmina.

About the first rosette, I really have no idea what it could be. The red,white,blue ribbon can be from the "Ereteken voor orde en vrede" and the orange from the long service medal for NCO's and enlisted men.

The second one, is the purple really purple or maybe faded red (Legion d' Honneur??).

Could easily be faded... its not bright purple in any way.

The photo shows the color pretty accurate.
